The Wilderness is a dark and turbulent tragedy about love, revenge, redemption, and the struggle of good and evil within the depths of the human heart. It is a key work of one of the most important 20th century Chinese playwrights, Cao Yu, who has been referred to as China’s Shakespeare.
The production mixes art forms: speaking interspersed with the expressiveness of dance. A composer has created a specially commissioned score that combines traditional Chinese instruments with Western electronic music, complementing both the spirit of the original drama and its contemporary English staging.
This play will be performed in Chinese, by a non-professional cast who have trained extensively with acting, dance and music coaches.
A synopsis will be available in English.
Concessions are available to audience members aged 18 and under or 65 and over, and for full time students.
